  • This Black Series Emperor Palpatine figure was released single carded in late May, early June 2022 in the United States
  • The figure is a re-paint of the Black Series Emperor Palpatine figure from 2018, which was a re-work of the Black Series Palpatine figure released in 2015
  • Hasbro decided to include the neutral face expression with this release and the photo real print appears to be slightly toned back when compared to the figure from 2018
  • The figure came with a walking cane and a removable soft-goods robe
  • The soft-goods robe is easily removable
  • The cane fits well into the right hand and when the figure is placed into a leaning forward pose the cane will reach the floor well
  • This Black Series Emperor Palpatine figure has a soft-goods skirt which allows for a bigger range of movement for the legs
  • Palpatine keep his balance well when on display
  • All in all this is a great version of Palpatine, but you can skip this release if you already own the Palpatine figure with throne which came out in 2018
